Stories of Hope

Connie’s Story of Hope

“I’d lost everything… my family, my house. I’d tried twice to slit my wrists and end it all.”

Connie’s Story of Hope (Quicktime Version)

Connie – Portland Rescue Mission from pdxmission on Vimeo.

Alcohol consumed Connie’s life. She spiraled down a black hole, unable to escape. There were times she slept on the sidewalk. “I’m embarrassed by what I’d do for a safe place to shower or use the bathroom.” Death seemed like the only way out.

Connie found a thread of hope to cling to. In our recovery program, she’s found healthy ways to combat her addiction and live a full life again.
